FueledByMOTM: How I Train For Triathlon + 3 Easy Strategies To Get Your Workouts Done

Getting to the gym, a spin class or outdoors for your long run can be a challenge with a busy work, family and social schedule. As a triathlete, I know this well.  FueledByMOTM is a new Marni on The Move weekly segment offering tips, advice, and answers to listener questions.  On this premiere episode, I share my strategies for fitting my workouts into my busy schedule, stay motivated during training, and set goals to achieve success.  Many of you have been asking me how I find the time to train for triathlon and how I stay inspired in my training and workout routine. This isn’t a new question, as my friends and family have asked me for decades!  While this segment is focused on triathlon, these tips and advice apply to any sports or fitness routine. Before I trained for triathlon, I was a runner, yoga practitioner, and fitness class junkie. The only way I ever got to the gym or studio is by approaching training the same way I approach running my business. Whether I am spearheading initiatives within my own company, The Salup Group, building a brand strategy, communications and content campaign for a client, or producing events and FIT+LOVE’s annual fitness festival, I set achievable goals, build a team, map out a plan of action, build it into my schedule and get it done.

Daphnie Yang, Creator of HIIT IT! On Having A Positive Mindset, Running, and Fitness

Are you ready to feel empowered, inspired, motivated?  Today’s guest is all about making you feel good, bringing you joy, and powering you with the strength and confidence you need to live your best life!

From her popular fitness class, HIIT IT!, and her Power Hour networking events to her inspiring Instagram feed @Definedbydaphnie, and her podcast Just One More!, you are definitely going to love this conversation with fitness entrepreneur, innovator, and founder, Daphnie Yang.

Daphnie turned her love of dance, passion for running, talent for performing and experience in personal training into a life and career she loves with the launch of her wildly popular fitness class, HIIT IT!, which burst onto the fitness scene in October 2013. What began as a group workout with a few clients in Central Park has grown into the ultimate high intensity interval training workout.

On today’s episode we talk about how running transformed her life, where her journey with dance and fitness began, the narrative she created that almost prevented her from building her brand, having a positive mindset, and of course her sweat-drenching, fun-infused workout, HIIT IT! The one hour, 800 calorie burning workout she created that blasts body fat, torches calories, sculpts lean muscle mass, strengthens the core, skyrockets the metabolism and improves cardiovascular endurance.

Empowered with a BFA in Dance from NYU in 2007, multiple International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) Certifications in Personal Training, Pre and Post Natal Training, Marathon Coaching and Nutrition Counseling, Daphnie has motivated hundreds of people to reduce body fat, sculpt lean muscle mass, and run marathons, but most importantly, she has helped countless people achieve balance and wellness in their day to day lives. HIIT IT! classes are taught at Athleta Flatiron and Primary in NYC. Daphnie currently trains clients six days a week at her gym space in downtown Manhattan or on-site at clients homes and corporate offices.  To learn more, head over to her website, www.daphnieyang.com or follow her on social @definedbydaphnie, @powerhournyc, @hiititnyc or @justonemorepod.

Denise Lee, CEO + Founder, Alala, On Fashion, Fitness and Female Empowerment

Denise Lee always knew she wanted to be an entrepreneur. Growing up in Hong Kong, she moved to NYC to go to NYU Stern and pursue her dreams. But it wasn’t until she started training for her first triathlon in 2012 that she had her “aha” moment. As an avid athlete, she couldn’t find any activewear brand that offered the effortless cool styles of the contemporary designers she loved. Denise found the market lacking in a sense of creativity. Flash forward to 2014, she launched Alala. Today the brand is one of the leading modern activewear brands, providing women with sophisticated style, designs and silhouettes that are chic, comfortable, and workout ready!

On today’s episode, Denise and I sync up about where Alala began, her personal and brand mission, Alala’s very cool and forward thinking design collaborations and partnerships, and the workouts that fuel her for success.

Alala was one of the premier brands on the athleisure landscape catering to the studio going, class loving fitness crowd while appealing to women who wanted comfortable stylish active wear to wear to the office or lounge at home, five years later they continue to innovate. Alala is now carried in over 100 major retailers including Bloomingdales and Neiman Marcus, and it has been seen on celebs Ashley Grahm, Reese Witherspoon, Naomi Watts, and Jessica Alba. But these celebrities are not the only stars wearing Alala, it’s the strong and inspiring women around the country that really shine for Alala and Denise Lee!

LIVE from NYC: How To Adopt An Athletic Mindset For Life, Career, + Training with Andia Winslow, Andrew Kalley, Louis Sagar, and Murray Hidary

Today’s episode is all about mindset and intentions across athleticism, career, fitness, and wellness.  You will hear from former podcast guests (on new topics) including top professional and elite athletes, Andia Winslow and Andrew Kalley, and entreprenurs and founders Murray Hidary and Louis Sagar and learn how they  leveraged thier athletic mindset to empower them with the perseverence, focus, and dedication to succeed in their career, the strenth and flexibility to power through severe life illnesses and overcome family loss.  From triathlon, golf and running to CBD, music, and meditation you will be inspired and motivated to get started on your next athletic or entreprenurial endeavor.

This was the first Marni on the Move LIVE panel which took place at world renowned athletic complex and NYC gym, Chelsea Piers Fitness.Panel guests include:Professional Athlete-Golfer and Runner, Andia Winslow, who has been building her career as a successful on-air personality and voice over talent over the past several years, Andrew Kalley, an winning Elite Athlete, triathlon coach and personal trainer at Chelsea Piers Fitness with his own portfolio of clients at Kalley Fitness, Louis Sager, the CEO of The Alchemist’s Kitchen , and Murray Hidary, piianist, entrepreneur, creator of MindTravel, a musical meditation and experience.

It truly was a magical evening. We were on the deck outside, overlooking the Hudson. The event began with the panel, where listeners got to experience first-hand,, what it was like to be part of the podcast with digital wireless headsets almost as if they were in the room where it happens, thanks to Murray Hidary of MindTravel. Following the panel, Chelsea Piers Fitness talented and popular yoga teacher, Danielle Prager led a vinyasa style yoga class to the music of MindTravel and Murray continued to play trugh savasana into the night.

While all of this sounds wonderful and amazing, the episode audio is a little rough at first. Like a true entrepreneur, I had a vision and took a big risk, my first time recording a live event at this venue and really set the barre high. We were outside, recording digitally, no wires, with some technical interference and signals and occasional helicopters in the background.  My audio engineers are terrific. But it’s not the same as being in the studio so I wanted to prepare you for a few glitches here and there. However, it’s a really inspiring and empowering conversation and can maybe plant some seeds for you as we move into the New Year!

Andrew Kalley: Elite Triathlete and USAT Triathlon Coach on Mindset + Training

Train hard to race easy! That is Elite Athlete and USAT Level 2 Coach, Andrew Kalley’s philosophy when it comes to triathlon. And that’s exactly what he does.  Andrew Kalley has qualified 8x for the ITU World Championship to represent Team USA.  He has 12 Overall Wins, including the NYC Triathlon, Stamford Triathlon, South Beach Triathlon, and the Montauk Triathlon.  Even when faced with a life changing diagnosis that most people would have given up and put training on hold, Andrew’s athletic, winning mindset and inspiring clients kept him going through it all. In 2014 he was diagnosed with Colon Cancer, but his training went on! Even while undergoing chemo, he still qualified for Worlds in 2015 (and was nominated to raise the USA flag at the Opening Ceremony.

For the past 11 years, Andrew Kalley has been an elite athlete and triathlon coach for the most impressive tri team in the Northeast.

Andrew’s name is synonymous with the team.  He is also a personal trainer at my favorite gym and athletic playground, Chelsea Piers Fitness and recently launched his own national triathlon coaching and training company, Kalley Fitness.

Nearly two decades ago my  next guest pioneered creating the world’s largest candy store, confectionery emporium and lifestyle brand, Dylan’s Candy Bar. Dylan Lauren merged her love of art, fashion and pop culture with candy and has innovated the way we see and experience candy today.

In addition to thousands of edible treats and activities, there are also candy-inspired lifestyle products. From stationery to technology, toys, jewelry to handbags, scented body lotions to sweaters.
